Hills, Tad : How Rocket Learned to Read

Celebrate 10 years of Rocket with this first book in the New York Times bestselling series about an adorable dog named Rocket who learns to read with help from a little yellow bird. 

In this memorable story, irresistible Rocket--a sweet, thoughtful pup who is curious about the world around him--meets a tiny yellow bird with a storybook and a love for words. Initially reluctant to learn, Rocket gets some help from his patient new teacher. And eventually, through a lot of hard work, Rocket becomes a tail-wagging, enthusiastic student who sings out the sounds of each letter in the alphabet, practices how to sound words out, and eventually, learns how to read!

With a story that makes reading fun—and will even help listeners learn to read—this book is ideal for kindergarten classrooms and story hour or as a gift for that beginning reader. Fresh, charming art by Tad Hills, the New York Times bestselling author/illustrator of Duck & Goose, will make this a perfect introduction to other favorite Rocket books, R Is for Rocket and Rocket Writes a Story, as well as the leveled readers including Rocket’s 100th Day of School; Drop It, Rocket!; Rocket the Brave; and Rocket’s Very Fine Day.

Review, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES:
"A perfect picture book for kids 3-7."

Review, THE BOSTON GLOBE:
"A picture book all about the joys of reading could easily turn preachy and dull. But “How Rocket Learned to Read’’ defies gravity. Rocket is lovable, the little feathered teacher adorable. Hills tells his sprightly story as needed, not one word more or less. His pictures flow with soft color and movement. Hills makes this a story of friendship. It may persuade tentative kindergarteners that school is worth a try; teachers and librarians will love it."

Review, KIRKUS REVIEWS:
"Hills’s gentle, sweet tale is a paean to the joy of reading and the teachers that inspire it."

Review, PUBLISHERS WEEKLY:
"With characters as memorable as those in Hills’s Duck and Goose series, this good-natured story shows readers how Rocket, a spotted puppy, becomes a beginning reader, thanks to a little yellow bird."

Review, SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL:
"Youngsters will find this addition to Hills’s cast of adorable animal characters simply irresistible."
